Calculating with uncertainties

  1. Sep 20, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Basically I'm doing a lab and it states that I am not to omit uncertainties from my calculations. It has been ages since I've calculated with uncertainties so when I went back to my notes, they weren't there! Now I am completely lost and clueless. I know there are such things as percent and integer based uncertainties but other than that I don't have any equations or examples to make myself clearer. I really hope that you guys can be of help to me.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
